      Reproduction Steps

      1. Install Puppet Agent on SUT.
      2. Create user "Jöhn".
      3. Logoff and login as "Jöhn".
      4. Create the manifest "C:\test.pp" on the SUT with the following content:

        exec { 'tomcat-configure-service':
          command  => "C:\\Windows\\System32\\WindowsPowerShell\\v1.0\\powershell.exe Get-ChildItem Env:",
          onlyif   => "C:\\Windows\\System32\\WindowsPowerShell\\v1.0\\powershell.exe exit 0",
          provider => windows,
          logoutput => true,
          tag      => 'tomcat-configure-service',
        }

      5. Open a Puppet Console session as Administrator.
      6. Change console font to "Lucidia Console". (Puppet will crash otherwise. PUP-5717)
      7. Change codepage:

        chcp 437

      8. Execute the following command on the SUT:

        puppet apply c:\test.pp

      9. List the contents of the user profiles directory:

        dir C:\Users

      Expect

      The Puppet run should succeed.

      Actual

      Facter reports an uncaught exception.
